Rediscover Old Bali in Karangasem:
Home of the Kings of Bali, the Karangasem Royal family created fabulous water gardens and pleasure palaces all easily accessible within the hour by car or motorbike from Seraya Shores. Driving from Amlapura, Seraya’s local township, peep into these rich and ancient traditions at the Royal Palace, and just 5 minutes before Seraya lies the ruins of The Water Palace in Ujung Village Gardens.
A scenic journey 30 mins to the mountains, visit The Water Gardens at Tirtaganga and swim in the crystal clear and holy spring waters under Mount Agung - Bali's highest volcano and centre of the universe. A further 2 minutes and you are on your way to the largest and holiest temple in Bali, Puri Besakih, with 7 levels of temples at the steps of Mount Agung.
East Bali is also home to some of the best dive spots in Bali and Seraya Shores can recommend professional dive masters and boat trips from Tulamben's Liberty Wreck, to Nusa Lembongan. So if sun, sleep, surf and great food is not enough, a day out with our local guide around the Kingdom of Bali will be sure to satisfy the adventure seekers.
